To break a record Is the great desire
pf American wheelmen, if not of wheel men everywhere. All sports have suf fered (or have been benefited) by record breaking; but none can begin to com pare with cycling for the frequency with which its records fall by the way. Last summer Michael made a new record for the hour. Previously the record was held by Rivierre, one of the most peculiar racing men in the world. fUvierre felt the loss of his record to Michael, so he made another attempt fend succeeded. Then Ldnton broke it, only to have the honor wrested from him by Stocks, .an English rider. Lin ton again went after*>t,_ and again he : fvas successfi' 1 , but the Englishman Vas hot on his trail. The record was In the possession of Linton just one wv.k. when Stocks again broke It. and successfully, and probably the fight .v mid have continued had no-t the win t, r Season intervened. Bo it goes with all records The chairman of the L. A. W. racing lioard finds it impossible to keep up flvith the work of the record breakers, "for hardly has the table been made up jtrhen it is smashed ag-ain. However, th.' reason of 1896 saw a diminution of Record breaking, and the present sea p.>n will probably see still less. Where Bn attempt generally meant success in the past, it is now found to be neces j!:iry t.> make numbers of them before a victory is gained. ■ - -, -•'■-. ■.-...--'... . • -< : - 9 l '■"'■■ ■' ''• ' ''' \ig*Si There have been fewer changes in the record table of 1596 than in any ■within the history of the league. The records made by A. A. Hanson, of ■Minneapolis, on Aug. 15, 1895, are yet the accepted times. These records run from twenty-six to sixity miles for ama teurs in competition. More remarka- Lle still are the records made by Lau rens S. Meintjes. -c South African, whose visit to the United States in 1893 ■was one of the most brilliant in the his t , ry of American cylcling. Mr. Meint jes broke the most important long dis tance records in the books, and gave Americans their first taste of record breaking. Of course, there had been broken records before, but Meintjes gave us the first good taste of it. Meintjes still holds the amateur two fcours' record of this country, made n iv.:;, as does A. A. Hansen the six-hour record of 107 miles, made in 1894 An other amateur record of 1893 that stui holds is that of Spooner. who rode JW nrfles, HO yards in twelve hours, and J 292 miles, 440 yards in eighteen hours I The League of American Wheelmen has a new system, which must be fol lowed by the record breaker, and if he does follow it. then his record may safely be accepted. When a racer -wants to break a record he first applies to the racing board for a permit. lAvmed with this he is met by the rep fre-entative of the league, who is always foresemt at record attempts, and the two ftoe-fther select a good starter and three /timers of repute, and with the league / representative as master of ceremonies, and not less than fifteen spectators as I -witne«=es, the attempt is made. It may be that the record wanted is an un | raced one. in which case the rider starts several hundred feet back of the lane H. starts, and as he crosses the ( tape with a flying start the pistol is % fired, and the three or more stop •watches are started, aniy to be stopped rthe moment the front tire of his wheel cVosses the tape. The time is then an ncunced, and if the speed is better than the existing record, then he has, of course, been successful. He is then re quired to fill out a blank, explaining his style of record which fie has just \ made; whether it is flying start or eta-nding start, paced or unpaced, com petition or against time, &c. When all this is recorded to suit the master of ceremonies, the timers certify to the r correct time, the witnesses certify that J ithf record was made, and then the f -whole is sworn to before a notary. / This is all sent to the racing board I chairman. If he thinks the attempt M lias been made according to the rules and has no reason to suspect the gen- I fineness of the application, it is grant ed, and the new times are entered on ■the books. SOME NEW RECORDS. Albert Mott, the new head of the L. A W racing board, has just completed his record table for 1897. It is the first authentic table issued this season.

COMING CYCLING EVENTS. While the "dates" for the forthcom ing circuit races have not as yet been allotted, the chairman announces that the first one will probably be held May 12, at Charlotte, N. C. A meet at Jacksonville, Fla., will follow/ and then a trip through the South, taking in Savannah, Augusta, Macon, Charles ton, Atlanta, Memphis, Nashville, Bir mingham, Chattanooga, Louisville anrl thence West. From that point the rac ing men will slowly make their way East, joining in Philadelphia in August, where the annual meet of >fee League of American Wheelmen will be given. At this point and time the national championships of the season will ba given, and it is here the interest in racing centers each season. Besides the two L. A. W. champion ships, the Intercollegiate Athletic union will give a Championship con test at Manhattan Beach track in New York early in June, and unusual inter est will center in this event, as the col leges have cultivated great rivalry. Columbia college at present holds the majority of the championships, al though Fred Schade, of Washington, took the five mile event last year for his college, the St. George, of Wash ington. The championships of the world will be held in Scotland this year during the month of Avrgusfc EL-ECTRIC MdTHm CYCI.E. It Is Started and Stopped In Ordinary Fashion. An invention has been patented by a New York man which makes the unusual com bination of the electric spark and either naphtha, petroleum or gasoline. The union of the two elements is accomplished by placing a battery on top of the tank containing which ever fluid may be preferred of the three men tioned. The former ia connected by the nec essary wires with the motive apparatus so that the electricity may cause the necessary ex plosion which produces an impelling force whenever it is desired. Battery and supply tank are located back of and just under the saddle of the bicycle. The bicycle is supplied with the Usual chain and sprocket wheels, one of the latter being attached to the pedal spindle, and the second sprocket wheel to the axle of the bicycle at one side of the rear traction wheel. At the end of the shaft opposite the sprock et wheel is attached a pinion adapted to gear with the driving pinion. This is journalled to a stud that forms part of the casing that surrounds the revolving cylinder secured to the shaft of the rear wheel. It is in this cyl inder that the pockets are located— in the outer section — which receive a charge of vapor that causes the wheel to revolve. The vaporizer has an inlet in its upper por tion partially closed by a pin resting upon a distributor that holds the fluid which comes from the tank to be vaporized. Beneath this sphere there is a cup-shaped receptacle which ho'.ds any superflous fuel and prevents it from being drawn into the cylinder through the tube. There are apertures in this tube which receive a supply of cold air, and this mixes with the hot air discharged from the similar apertures of the second cylinder be fore it is carried into the vaporizer. By this means the vaporization of the substance used as fuel is largely increased. So far as the electric battery is concerned, it is the inventor's iaea;tnat it will be easier to place it on top of "tHe" supply tank, but that is not imperative, as it can be secured to any point of the wheel *vhich may THE SAINT PAUt, GLOBE: SUNDAY, MAY 9, 1897. be deemed desirable. Wires lead from the two poles of the battery Into the cylinder through insulating plugs, and are run into the cylinder in such a position that the points are very near together— so near, in fact, that an arc la formed and a Bpark produced oy either making or breaking the current. The circuit is alternately broken and com pleted by the forward and backward move ments of a circuit making plate, which is at tached to a piston rod of the piston within the first cylinder referred to. This plate is inaulated from the rod upon which it is mounted by the use of ordinary insulating material. Now as to the operation of the machine. The stopcock of the pipe leading from the tank is turned on sufficiently to allow a small stream of the fuel to flow into the va porizer. Owing to the small inlet being par tially closed, the fuel flows very slowly, dif fuses itself over the surface of the spherical distributer and then vaporizes. Then the bi cycle is started, the rider pedalling in the or dinary fashion until the necessary rotary motion is imparted to the sprocket wheel and thence to the cylinder ana pinion. This imparts continuous movement to tha pis-ton contained within the first cylinder, and the piston moves back and forth, alter nately taking in a supply of vapor- and dis charging the same. Just as soon -as 'the in ward stroke of the piston is completed and the supply of vapor in the cylinder exhausted into the second cylinder, an electrical contact results. This causes the production of a spark within the second cylinder, exploding the vapor. The expanse force thus obtained is ex erted upon the driving cylinder through the medium of one of the pockets. This pocket is then exhausted through the pipe, and thence through the opening in the pipe back into the vaporizer. The hot air in transit from the pocket of the cylinder mixes with the supply of cold air which is drawn in through the opening of the pipe. This mixture of hot and coid air assists in the vaporization of the fuel that has flowed into the vaporizer from the tank, and thus a continuous supply of vapor for the first cylin der is maintained. This makes it plain to be seen that by the means described a continuous rotary mo tion is supplied to the cylinder and thence to the wheel of the bicycle. In this way an even, and if desired, terrific speed can be maintained until the supply of vaporizable material is exhausted or the machine is stopped by the rider. The cyclist can stop at his discretion, and in just -the same way as if there were no motor attachment to his wheel.

Mrs. Swartz, probably the most en thusiastic woman cyclist, of St. Paul, is an advocate of the bloomer costume for lady riders. "It is not a pretty one," she says, "and I think will never be worn to any great extent on the busy city streets, but it is the best and coolest possible costume for long rides. I cannot two strongly commend the diamond frame for ladies. It is becoming more and more popular and I am glad of it.

The idea of possessing a tandem and single wheel in the same vehicle appeals to the economic instinct of the average . rider. The cycle path between St. Paul and White Bear Lake is now in good con dition. The path is only about three feet wide, however,* which is a draw back, as cyclists travelling over it must string out in Indian file. It is bounded on the left here and there by stretches of wire fence, which makes coasting very dangerous, as the path is very hilly, and the grade at the poor house, about seven miles out of St. Paul, would be especially appalling to first season riders, who, of course, necessarily slow up and lose strength by the time they reach the top of the hill. White posts are located here and there at either side of the path to keep teams from destroying it. C. E. Carter, the foreman in charge of repairs on the path last week, found a scythe laid across it, the blade finely sharpened, protruding about a quarter of an inch above the sand, buried with much ingenuity. The curves should be dished; they are very short, and going at full speed one is liable to take a header round ing one of them. The path is smooth ly graded and is already extensively traveled, and will probably be one of the favorite routes this season. » • ♦ The Summit avenue path is the scene of a perpetual cy^le show. The season is still in its infancy, but riding down Summit one realizes the enor mous sale of wheels compassed this spring. The costumes worn on the avenue send a beautiful color effect to the rapidily moving panorama. The path, which continues to Minneapolis, is much superior at this end of the ...line. It seems to be cut by wagon wheels as it approaches the neighbor ing city. Riding schools are doing a land of fice business this year. At least that is the experience of George Dodds. Mr. Dodds was asked yesterday about the peculiarities of beginners. He said: "Well, they're all 'pretty much th 3 same, confident at nrst 'lesson, very timid at next one andphetyient towards the last. Ladies fin 4 it, to avoid a tendency to studyicthe^ front wheel while learning to ride, and do not at first see the pholosoptiy off guiding the wheel toward the side en which it starts to fall. They arfe warned to look ahead for tacks 'an* street cars. In learning to ride, the first lesson ia that of implicit obe3lenc£ to the in structor. A man's liift of t- questions is 'How'm I coming on?' 'Tnink another lesson will do it, dom't you?' A lady asks: 'Now, do you>reaily think I'll ever learn?' 'Will I^make a graceful rider?' 'Do you think IB be able to go fast?' "Ladies insist at first on having the handle-bars raised to their greatest height, gradually lowering them as they progress. The proper bend on the wheel is that from the hips, not a droop of the shoulder, the latter is lia ble to weaken the lungs and mak'i the rider short of wind in riding up grade or for a long distance; the other has just the opposite effect. Bicycle leggins will soon be a thing Of the past. Golf stockings and ordi nary ribbed hose are much more gen erally worn. The high cycle shoes have very good points, but they are rather stiff at the ankle, and very warm as the summer advances. VOTER THE WijlJlEH HASTINGS, TUB FAVOBITE FOR THE HrETROPOIJTAW HANDICAP, NOT EVEN PLACED. LAMLEY UP ON THE LEADER. THE WINNER CAME IX SECOND WITH CASSEOPIA A GOOD THIRD. SEASON OPENED AT MORRIS PARK. Grand Stand a Blaze of Brilliant Color and the Track Fast and Hard. NEW YORK, May B.— This was a gala day at Morris park, the occasion being the opening of the regular rac ing season in the state of New York. The splendid race course was never in better condition, the buildings being spick and span, the infields and lawns like velvet, and the track fast and moderately hard. The grand stand was a blaze of color, Dame Fashion hav ing decided upon gaudy reds and pur ples for this spring, and her mandates having been faithfully obeyed. The interest was more or less perfunctory in the first and second races, but when August Belmont won the Juvenile stakes there was a good deal of ap plause. The real interest, however, was not shown until the Metropolitan was run. It was 4:30 when the horses arrived at the post far the big event, and af ter a slight delay they started on their journey in excellent order. Hanwell was first to show in the lead, but in an instant Voter flashed in front of him, and in the first quarter had open- £3- • ed a gap offffe couple of lengths and seemed to be desirous of making it more, nearly pulling Lamley out of the saddle. Hanwell was in second place, with the favorite, Hastings. The Win ner was next, and the others were straggling along fairly close up, al though game Sir Walter, hero of many a handicap, was a bad last. In the next quarter there was a little change in the position of the flying squadron. The leader maintained about the same position, but Casseopia, the fleet filly of the Morris string, had shot up into second place, while Hanwell, with his bolt shot, dropped slowly back. The Winner was not doing so well and Sloan was climbing out on his neck, lying low to avoid any windage, and the colt was beginning to feel the im petus, for, at the three-quarter mark, when all were straightened out, he was close to Hastings, on whom Taral had not made a move. It was but a few seconds more when they were at the seven furlong post and the boys who were waiting for Voter to come back to them found there was a lot of run left in him and he was half a length away with the home line* in sight. Then Taral was hard at work on Hastings, but thp weight was telling and the colt could not gain an inch; in fact, he was slip ping back. Casseopia was doing re markably well and looking as if she might land second money, but Sloan was still in the race and working like a demon on The Winner. A jump or two and Casseopia was pacsed and he had but Voter in front of hh.>. For a fraction of a second he was on level terms with Voter, but Lamley got to work at once and urged his mount to the utmost. There was a gain of a fcot for the blue and white spots and then the pair hung together, neither able to gain an inch and they passed the judges eyes like a team. Voter a short head in front of The Winner, and how the crowd yelled. Everybody must have backed Voter, if the noise could be taken as an indication. It was a great victory and no less a triumph for Sloan, for he rode The Winner to perfection. First race, five furlongs — Lithos won, Ci;ic sescond, The Swain third; time, 1:00%.
